Full description
On arriving to Singapore in 1819 Sir Stamford Raffles famously said "This place possesses an excellent harbour... Singapore is everything we could desire." Singapore was subsequently claimed as a trading outpost of the British Empire and the rest, as they say, is history. In governance, religion, entertainment, and many other spheres, the imprint of Singapore's colonial past carries on. On this walking tour you'll also learn about Singapore's national flower, the Sarkies brothers, The Straits Times and find that wonderful drink called "the Singapore Sling." Discover Singapore's colonial legacy from The Time of Empire.
